MedTIS - MEDITERRANEAN CORRIDOR DEPLOYING TRAVELLER INFORMATION SERVICES
MedTIS is a deployment project with objective to implement Traveller Information Services on the TEN-T Mediterranean Corridor. MedTIS takes onboard TEN-T priorities and EC policy objectives to deliver high-level Travel Time Services and enhanced Traveller Information services including road user awareness to European travellers.
Along a 6.800 km Corridor MedTIS Action involves 4 Member States from the European Union: France, Italy, Spain and Portugal. 22 road operators from these 4 countries are in charge of the onsite deployments of services and systems.
MedTIS supports the following objectives:
- Well informed travellers: pre-trip and on-trip, with positive impacts on bottlenecks
- Support road-user decision making: displaying alternative roads and solutions to support wise decisions making
- Enhanced road users safety in normal and abnormal situations
- Coordinated road operators supporting operational excellence
- Interoperability through the implementation of ITS standards among which DATEX2, Mare Nostrum and the EasyWay 2012 Deployment Guidelines
- Continuity of service on strategic bottlenecks such as cross-border areas
- Maintain network efficiency in all conditions once users’ safety is ensured
- Enhanced freight traffic management: optimised use of truck park infrastructures
MedTIS is dedicated to support the implementation of high-level ITS services related to traveller information. A strong focus is put on Travel Time Information for which partners intends to enhance dramatically the level of service on the corridor.
MedTIS will deliver consistent results and impacts towards EU road users and citizen. Figures demonstrate the ambition of a 3 years project:
- MedTIS will deliver more than 2.800 km of high-level Travel Time Information services along the corridor
- MedTIS will implement continuous Travel Time Information services on key bottlenecks and cross-border sections such as France-Italy and France-Spain
- MedTIS will deliver more than 5.500 km of high level Traveller Information services along the corridor
MedTIS deploys high-level services and systems thus enhancing the onsite level of service perceived by road users.
